Melbourne and me

I love to travel and have spent time in some amazing cities. Many keep drawing me back – New York, Barcelona and Paris in particular – but I always return to Melbourne and feel truly blessed to live here.

Melbourne has outstanding architecture, a great food and wine culture (Heston recently relocated his Fat Duck restaurant here for six months), intriguing laneway bars, beautiful gardens, a thriving pub music scene, ever-changing street art, markets galore (food, vintage, design and more), world class galleries and museums, a passionate community prepared to fight for a good cause, and so much more.

On this blog I’ll share what I love about Melbourne.  I’ll write about the places I visit and the people I meet along the way. I’ll also share photographs from Melbourne and my travels.

I enjoy receiving feedback and comments so feel free to tell me what you think.
